All but a single Republican (Brian Fitzpatrick) just voted *against* the Voting Right Act (!) restoration bill in the House.

The University of North Carolina gave the Sons of Confederate Veterans $2.5 million

The University of North Carolina is funding the Sons of Confederate Veterans instead of its Civil Rights and Poverty Centers

Take Action https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/tar-heel-confederates/?t=4&akid=39454%2E669511%2EoAPG6V

Dear ONNIDAN Poster,

The University of North Carolina (UNC) is currently providing financial support for the headquarters of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Funding for this hate-filled group came at the expense of two university centers: the Center on Poverty and Workforce Development and the Center for Civil Rights. There's no mistaking what's unacceptable about this. A state university is prioritizing funding for a certified hate group,1 whose primary function is to promote white supremacy, over institutions that respond to the needs of Black people and vulnerable communities.

Tell the University of North Carolina governing board it should not be funding the Sons of Confederate Veterans https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/tar-heel-confederates/?t=5&akid=39454%2E669511%2EoAPG6V 

In addition, UNC gave the Sons of Confederate Veterans $2.5 million to keep its “Silent Sam” Confederate statue after students and other university supporters removed it last spring2. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a violent organization. The statue was erected in 1913 by a former UNC trustee as he whipped a Black woman for insulting it.3 Their mission statement, “committing to the vindication of the Civil War,4” is a continuous reminder that they are heavily invested in a return to slavery. The way the governing board has bent over backwards for neo-Confederates makes its actions loud and clear: the University of North Carolina system does not foster a community that cares about Black lives.

Sign our petition demanding the Board of Governors stop funding white supremacy with state university dollars. https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/tar-heel-confederates/?t=6&akid=39454%2E669511%2EoAPG6V

After the governing board’s $2.5 million contribution was disclosed, the Sons of Confederate Veterans referred to the outcome as a victory, following their unsuccessful attempt to sue the university for the student removal of this tribute to slavery. The governing board insisted on secrecy surrounding their funding and did not want the $2.5million donation to be made public.5 The Board’s failed attempts to censor these dealings tell us even they knew they were wrong.

The most shameful thing about all this is the university is funding hate at the expense of two essential centers that would truly support and grow the institution and surrounding community. The governing board fired the attorneys affiliated with the Civil Rights Center6 and had to return funds that supported its Center on Poverty and Workforce Development.7  For the Board of Governors to use the university's platform and money in this way is a slap in the face to justice-minded North Carolinians and any Black person affiliated with the university. The University of North Carolina Board of Governors is a part of a violent cornerstone of the white South that ensures Black people remain in political, economic, and social subordination. We must push back.

Tell the Board of Governors to stop funding Confederate hate. https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/tar-heel-confederates/?t=7&akid=39454%2E669511%2EoAPG6V

I BELIEVE NO GOPer HAS TURNED ON HIM BECAUSE THEY KNOW HE IS NOT NOR DOES HE OPERATE LIKE A TRADITIONAL POLITICIAN.  HE HAS AND ACTS MORE LIKE A MOB BOSS WHO WILL EXACT RETRIBUTION WHEN CROSSED. HOWEVER, I BELIEVE THE DAY IS COMING VERY SOON THAT THEY WILL SEE THE "EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES" AND WILL TURN ON HIM LIKE A PACK OF SHARKS ON ONE OF THEIR OWN, WHO IS ACCIDENTLY WOUNDED AND BLEEDING.  :popcorn:

TRUMP HAS BEEN WOUNDED BY THE IMPEACHMENT ACTIONS AND THE GOPers ARE SIMPLY WATCHING TO SEE THE EXTENT OF THAT WOUNDING.

MTF.

Two leagues in one year. The XFL will soon join these in the cemetery.
